Postby bruuno2 » Sun Mar 27, 2005 3:32 pm

I drafted him with my second pick with confidence.How can you just ignore those #s?46 hrs 121 rbis 334avg.However it seems that many believe this was a fluke.What's your take on this guy other than he is now playing in a "pitchers park"? :-?

What do you mean "now playing in a pitcher's park?" He was at Dodger Stadium last year, which is widely regarded as the best pitcher's park in all of baseball. He hit half of his HR there (23). I like him a lot this year.

I have him pegged for 310, 36, 110 RBI, 90 Runs.

I don't expect him to put up the same numbers he did last year, but he will still put up good enough numbers to where he is being drafted IMO.

Well, the issue with Dodger Stadium isn't home runs, its a middle of the pack with home runs, but the issue is more average, because of the large foul territory. What would have been in the stands in that stadium is is often an out in Dodgers Stadium. But they are adding more seats and getting rid of some of the foul territory.

I expect Beltre to be the top one or two 3B this year and more than justify your second-round pick. Expect a line like 325-40-110-110-5 with upside to repeat last year's numbers. So far in ST, he's shown no signs of any adjustment problem to a new team or league.

I agree, but Ill take it a step further and say he'll be more valuable than Arod - again.

This is about what I like him to produce. He should be good, as long as hes healthy, Sexson knocks him in, and Ichiro and Reed get on base ahead of him.

best 3B overall, which means better than arod. he'll provide mid-first round value and apperantly you can get him mid-2nd or even early 3rd round in some drafts.
